The atmosphere, food, service, and drinks were wonderful. We spent almost 2 hours there and it only felt like 10 minutes! Will definitely be going again and again!

Try the tasting menu. More than enough delicious tapas for two people and enjoy the sangria. Will visit again when back in town

We had an early evening reservation and it was quiet. Our server was super friendly and helpful with the menu.
All items were well presented and delicious.
The chocolate cake for dessert was the perfect portion size and very tasty.

We had 7 tapas plates. The pork belly was the best _by_a_mile_. Shrimp cevice was very good, a strong #2. Cod cheeks, probably #3. Patatas bravas, #4. After that, nothing really memorable, except I will say that the crab spring roll was a disappointment and our least favorite. The sangria was good, and service was very good. Atmosphere at our high-top table was poor - so dark that it was impossible to read the menu without a cell phone to light it, and we really have no idea what any of the dishes looked like

There were four of us and we ordered the $129 tapas selection. It was enough food and everything was really delicious. Service was really good, food came out on two boards, giving you time to eat one board before bringing out the next. Only complaint about the experience is the high chairs. They had little back support and for two of us they kept falling down a little bit at a time. Would definitely go back but request different seating.
